Counseling and care for advanced maternal age (maternal age +35)
More and more women are choosing to have babies later in life. While this affords them the ability to establish careers and pursue their personal interests, women who have children after
35 can be at a higher risk for disorders. Now, most women aged 35+ will have a healthy pregnancy, but it’s important to see an experienced doctor like Dr. Longoria.
Dr. Longoria offers:
- Preconception counseling: review genetic of teratogenic implications, as well as what you can do to start your pregnancy off healthy
- Early prenatal care: the earlier you get prenatal care, the better chance you have of ensuring your pregnancy is healthy and your baby is getting the nutrients needed to grow
- Genetic testing: we can prescribe genetic testing that can help to determine your risk of having a baby with genetic complications
